We are so proud of our student Grace Conrad for winning the George Eastman award at the University of Rochester! In founding the Eastman Kodak Company, George Eastman’s goal was
to make the camera “as convenient as a pencil.” By the end of his life, he had created one of the largest and most successful companies in America. Eastman’s leadership lives on today through Kodak and through his philanthropy, including a gift of over $50 million that helped transform the University of Rochester into an internationally celebrated institution. The George Eastman Young Leaders Award seeks to recognize future leaders who may have a similar impact on our world today.
This award is given to a student with:
• Strong leadership experience at school and in the community
• High grades and challenging courses
• Extensive involvement in extracurricular activities
Way to go, Grace! We are so proud of our global leaders!
